You have heard of the power of God. You have read all the scriptures about how with faith the impossible can be done. You understand in your head that God can do anything and that HE is the same yesterday, today and forever. You have heard the testimony of other Christians and heard how God has miraculously provided for them. You believe the power of God, the only problem is that you have seeds of doubt in your head and as such, you sometimes doubt God’s wiliness to work in your life. If that is where you are I hope this message ministers to you.
“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible for a person who believes” The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:23-24
In these passages God acknowledged to Jesus that he had the faith that Jesus could heal his son. However, he also acknowledged that he had some doubt as to whether Jesus was willing to heal his son. Jesus healed this man’s son so that HIS Father would be magnified here on earth. Jesus understood this man’s faith and his lack of faith and HE did not hold this man’s doubt against him but instead, gave this man his petition.
How often have you been the reason why your prayers have not been answered? You understand the power of God in your head, but you refuse to believe God from the bottom of your heart. It takes more then head knowledge to have faith, in order to have great faith; you must learn to have your heart and your head working in the same direction. In order to have faith, you must learn to believe with your heart the things that your mind has learned to comprehend. It is not easy to overcome doubt because it is a battle that Satan does not desire that you win. Satan understands the power of faith and he understands that you will be very ineffective for God if you lack faith.
You could not become a follower of Christ on just head knowledge. You had to learn to believe with your heart. In the same manner, you have heard of the power of God, now it is time that you learn to live your life with the power of God by applying your head knowledge to heart application. Satan desires to create doubt but God desires that you clearly understand HIS will and that you live in HIS power on a daily basis. The only way you are going to overcome the doubt Satan is going to throw at you will be by drawing closer to God and learning to hear HIS still small voice. By faith you will overcome doubt.
